The Historical Society finds itself in a position in which it will 
be impossible to issue its full four quarterly numbers for the 
year 1923. Miss Mabel L. Webber the capable Secretary of the 
Society who for many years has performed the work of preparing 
the material for, and supervising the printing and issue of, the 
Society's publications, met with a very severe accident while on 
an automobile trip in August, 1923. 

Miss Webber's accident and its consequences were such as to 
incapacitate her from the performance of her task, for all the 
remainder of 1923. She still is suffering from those consequences 
but the confident belief of the Society's administration is that her 
recovery is but a question of time and that the Society will con- 
tinue to enjoy her most valuable labour assistance and supervision. 
In the meanwhile it is contemplated that with the necessary 
assistance provided for her she will be in a position within a short 
time to have the Society's office in working order, and its pubh- 
cations resumed. As the issuance and correction of these publi- 
cations require skill and experience of a high order, the accident 
to Miss Webber necessarily postponed for a time the current work 
of the Society. No one could be procured at such short notice to 
take her place for the period of her disability. The Society has 
determined therefore to issue but two numbers of its Magazine 
for 1923. One to cover the six months ending 30 June and the 
other the six months ending 31 December. 

For the year 1924 it is hoped we will be able to issue the full 
four numbers of the Magazine.

Notes by the Editor 

Henry Laurens had returned from England in the summer of 
1784, but remained in Pennsylvania, chiefly in Philadelphia, 
until November 1784; on the 24th of that month he began the 
overland journey to Charleston, where, with his only remaining 
son. Henry Laurens, Jr., he arrived January 14, 1785.^ 

WilHam Bell, merchant, of Market St., Philadelphia, seems to 
have acted as friendly agent for Mr. Laurens, and the incomplete 
correspondence which we are now printing, forms part of the 
Laurens Collection of Manuscripts, the possession of this Society. 

The letters are originals, and cover the years 1785, 1792, and 
some in 1794 from Henry Laurens, Jr., written after the death of 
his father.

Charleston 12th March 1785. 
Dear Sir. 

When Capt Alibone was almost on the point of Sailing I received 
from the Post Office many letters which he had brought for me 
from Philadelphia, these had been lying in the Office while I was 
in the Country endeavoring to bring my distressed affairs in to 
some sort of order and where our friend Mr. H. L.^ now continues 
for the same purpose, we mean to relieve each other alternately. 

Among those letters I found your obliging favor of the 11th 
ultmo rephes are nearly anticipated by my last of the 7th that 
month per Capt. Baas; I then desired you to ship several articles 
on my account — to these give me leave to add the ''exceeding

neat good Harness and the Steps very low for the ease of my 
lame leg. we are here in a Sandy Country and I have always found 
Chairs set upon Shafts near or over the Axle much more safe and 
convenient than upon Springs or Braces — 1 doz sorted Spiral 
Augers contrived I think by Mr. Henry of Lancaster from 2 Inches 
down to half Inch, four pair of best Brass Fire Dogs with suitable 
Shovels tongs and fenders if such are companions to the Dogs, — 
this request to be compHed with provided it will be convenient 
to you to have a remittance for the Balance against me in a Bill 
upon London, which shall be immediately made, when you inform 
me the amount and your course of Exchange if you omit Com- 
missions I shall add it. 

I am obhged to conclude tho' I had more to say. With Compli- 
ments to Mrs. Bell and with great Regard & Respect 
I remain Dear Sir,

Dear Sir. 

On the 18th I was honour'd by the receipt of your obliging Let- 
ter of the 8th Inst by Capt. Strong who deliver'd the articles per 
Invoice & Bill of Loading in good order, the Beer pleases me, & 
the Hams appear to be very good but I shall try the quahty 

I thank you My dear friend for your affectionate and sympa- 
thetic expressions on my Case; Alas! we must cease from complain- 
ing and be thankful for what is left, in this view there -is great 
ground for the exercise of my gratitude to that good Being in 
whom we live and move the World is what it has been from the 
beginning and what it will be to the end. 

Besides the articles requested in my late letter 12th Inst, permit 
me to call for another provided the proposal for Payment by Bill 
upon London is acceptable. 

I have been informed that a Mr. Mason in your city makes 
Fire Engins of as good quaUty in all respects as they are made in 


London and as cheap, that he sent here printed proportions, these 
I have diligently inquired for without success, therefore I must 
appeal to your judgment; if Mr. Mason's Engines are actually 
as good as the English and even within five or ten per ct as cheap 
I request you will purchase one of the second Rate or size with 
a Leathern Hose, a Shovel and another fixture to the Brass Pipe 
for scattering Water like a Gardner's Wattering Pot, it may be 
sometimes used in my Garden tho' it is intended chiefly to guard 
against accidents by Fire: I live a little remote from the bulk of 
the City, pay equal rates with those who dwell in the Center yet 
I must take care of my own property. I wish to be supplied with 
this useful article as speedily as possible, if you do not succeed 
in the purchase I will immediately order one from London. . . . 
Alas poor General Reed,* his troubles are ended; he is only gone a 
little before us. 

Your fellow Traveller still continues in the Country I shall 
relieve him in three or four days, in one of his latest Letters he 
concludes "My compHments to all friends particularly Mr. and 
Mrs. Bell when you write" — 

I beg the Lady will permit me to add my own and that you 
will be assured I am with great regard, Dear Sir,

Dear Sir. 

Before I left Charleston the day before yesterday I had received 
the several articles which you had Ship'd on my Acco't by the 
London Packet Capt. Truxton and Charleston Packet Capt. 
Alibone, agreeable to the respective Invoices inclosed in your 

« Brig-Gen. Joseph Reed died in Philadelphia 5 Mar., 1785. 


several favors of 26th March and 9th April, which are now before 
me to reply to, these several Amounts with the Fire Engine and 
Riding Chair in prospect will bring me considerably in your debt 
besides an addition which I shall certainly make for customary 
Commission to each Invoice and for the two Barries of Porter 
which I hope you have not lost sight of; to cover all these I shall 
remit you a Bill on London at my return to Town about ten days 
hence for £258 Sterling which may leave a ballance in my favor 
to be applied on some future occasion. 

The Axes you have sent are not the sort I wanted, these are the 
shape of the London Pikking Axes, the German Axe made at 
GermanTown are shorter broader and flat eyes, but these will be 
employed and therefore no inconvenience. 

I obtained acceptance for the Bill £105 your Currency on 
Augus'n Buyck the day it came to hand, 13th Inst, it will become 
due the 26th wherefore you cannot hear its effect by this convey- 
ance, as Capt. Alibone will sail that very day; I have left it in the 
hands of a person who transmits affairs in my absence with dis- 
cretion to do the needful in case of nonpayment; from some hints 
I am at present of opinion it will not, in such case, be best to 
return it without your order, but press for the money; your further 
directions, admitting there should happen a delay of Payment, will 
be necessary and will oblige me. 

The freight by Capt. Truxton is comparatively reasonable. 
When the Captain arrived I was confined at home by the Gout, 
he was so good, at my request, to call upon me, and altho' I had 
no inclination to ship Rice to London, I offered to assist with 
100 or 150 Barrels, in the loading his Ship, but he replied, his 
whole Cargo was already laid in Store. 

I meant a Chair without a Cover, but since you have ordered 
a top let it be so, it is often useful and the additional weight is 
not very considerable. The Fire Dogs Shovels and tongs are all 
satisfactory, the Fenders we may speak of when the Summer is 
wearing off. in the mean time I may receive the opinion of the 
Ladies,^ so long expected and not yet arrived. I wish to have 
all the articles with the Fire Engine mentioned the 31st Ulto. —

3d. June 1785 
Dear Sir. . 

When Capt. Strong last arrived in this Port I was in the Country 
where the necessities of my affairs obliged me to be near half of 
my time, your young friend happened to be present and received 
from the Captain a riding Chair and Harness, said to have been 
ship'd by you on my account, and the freight demanded was duly 
paid, but to this day neither Letter, Invoice nor Bill of Loading 
respecting the shipment have appeared; hence I remain ignorant 
of the Cost, but the Chair is in use and I am very well satisfied 
with it and should have been equally pleased if it had been Top'd. 

The farmer's Waggon and Harnesses upon setting them to work 
proved defective in several articles, which when I see Mr. Laurens, 
provided I dont forget it, shall be particularly noted for your 


satisfaction, the person from whom it was purchased ought to 
make you compensation for the defects. 

The 27th Ulto I was honored by receipt of your Letter of the 
12th by Capt. AHbone who has delivered two Barrels of Phila- 
delphia Porter, which proves very good, your health is often 
drank in it. 

You certainly mistook the sort of Axes which I wanted but those 
you sent appear to be good of that fashion, and will be no incum- 
brance to me, two dozen of the short German Axes of the best 
make will however be useful and I request they may be sent at 
your leisure. 

In my absence from Charleston Mr. Buyck paid your draught 
for £105 Philadelphia Currency, I believe without much trouble, 
and two days ago Mr. Thom's Johnson, Clerk to Messrs Gervais & 
Owen, in whose hands I had left the Bill brought me two hundred 
and Eighty Dollars a 7/6 St [?] for the Amount, these stand to 
the credit of your account Curr't a 4/8. £65.6.8 our Stirling. I 
will not put you to the expence of freight & Insurance or risque 
but pay you on the spot at home. 

I thank you my Dear Friend for all your good wishes respecting 
myself and my Estate, for the latter I can only repeat I am con- 
tent; my Lands will maintain me & I am free from debt. Yet I 
met with a circumstance yesterday which would hurt the tran- 
quility of many a Man. Mr. Owen adjusted an Account for me 
with the Treasury, the Amount of which on any part was equal 
to four thousand two or three solid Guineas, for which I am al- 
lowed as much paper as would yield me about two hundred and 
fifty, the Treasurers determined according to a general Rule and 
would make no exceptions in favor of Mr. Laurens — how severely 
must similar adjustments be felt by Men who are in debt, by 
Widows and Orphans, the Rule appears to me, unjust and iniq- 
uitous but I must not add the loss of happiness to that of Money, 
nay! Comparatively you will admit I ought to be Content. 

As to my health 'tis precarious, I am very infirm, but this poor 
body has been greatly exercised and 'tis not very young, in this 
I am also Content, the man is a fool, for the time being, who makes 
himself miserable for any thing that befals him in this waning life. 

The Ladies you so kindly inquire after arrived two days before 
the date of Your Letter after a pleasant passage of Six Weeks 


from the Downs, they fled immediately into the Country where 
they now are with their Brother and will continue all this Month 
and where I shall visit them next Tuesday. I am sure you have 
the good wishes of them all for your goodness to me. Present 
my compliments to Mrs. Bell and be assured I am with affectionate 
Regard, Dear Sir, ' /

My good friend. 

On the 3d Ulto. by Capt. Alibone I had the honor of addressing 
you and at the same time remitted a set of Bills my own draught 
on Messrs Bourdieu Chollet and Bourdieu payable at 60 days 
sight to your order 250 Sterling, since which your obliging Letters 
of 20 April and 4th June by Capt. Strong have come to hand, 
where the former has been so long lying dorment is uncertain. I 
have also received the Fire Engine but have not had time to try 
its powers. 

Shall I request you to pay to Mr. Heltzhimer on my acct. 
seven pounds 6/11 your Currency and to take his receipt in full,, 
this Sum is the result of a bargain for Horseflesh in which my 
friend and I differed a little in opinion, I submited the decision 
wholly to himself and he has awarded so much against me. 

I begin to fear falling in arrears to you, the moment your acco't 
Current discovers it, the Ballance shall be paid, you might very 
justly retort — "You ought to know the state of the Account as 
well as myself." this would be true, but I have told you my cir- 
cumstances which do not yet allow me to keep up Books in that 
accurate order which I had been formerly accustomed to, your 
kind consideration I am persuaded will excuse me. The appear- 
ance of a Minister from Spain^ in any Character is a good thing, 
and not the worse for being accompanied by two hundred thou- 

' Don Diego Gardoqui, minister from Spain arrived early in the Summer of 


sand Dollars. The Spaniards I apprehend will never open their 
Ports in the West Indies to the United States except it may be 
in a Limited degree by contract in which the Contractors on each 
side will enjoy certain feelings, in such an event Philadelphia or 
New York or both will be the fortunate Port or Ports which 
certainly would not be injurious to this or any other State in the 
Union, however desirable such contract might be to such. I feel 
no Envy because my Neighbor is richer than I am. Our Nation 
is in a state of Infancy, and sorry I am to repeat, that from the 
moment Peace was announced, our Citizens throughout the 
Union have acted like Infants in Politics and Prodigals in Life 
and manners, the Evi^ I know will purge itself but w^e shall receive 
and have already received many a woful pang in the operation, 
you know my sentiments fully on these subjects, all the West 
India Ports would not have been shut against us had we acted 
with sagacity in the beginning. 

Mr. Laurens and the rest of my family are in the Country, I 
am at present alone, the whole will be here in three or four days 
for the Summer, in other Countries people go into the Country 
in the Summer, in this, we come to Town, but I must make another 
visit in a few days and stay about a fortnight, the Crops of every 
kind in low Lands have suffered by Rains and swelling of Rivers, 
but in general they stand very well at present, those of Rice and 
Indian Corn will in all appearance be plentiful. 

With my best Respects to Mrs. Bell and repeated assurances of 
Esteem and Regards, I remain. Dear Sir.

My last was by AHbone under the 6th July since which none of 
your favors have appeared. 


I request you to send me by the first opportunity six proper 
Shingling Hatchets in addition to the German Axes. I want four 
good draught Horses and one very good Saddle Horse for your 
friend H. L. how are prices now in your State or the Jersey — and 
how would you advise to conduct them hither, by Land or Sea? 
what Freight and other expence will attend a Sea Voyage? Could 
a proper faithful Man be hired to bring them by Land and would 
the expence be more or less than by Sea? if the Horses arrive 
about the 10th or middle of November they will answer my pur- 
pose, your reply will determine me on the subject. If our Harvest 
is good Crops of Rice, Indian Corn and Indigo will be large.

the Receipt of Your favor to me of the 27th Ulto, by Capt. Strong, 
to thank you for one of the Same Date to himself accompanied by 
an Account of Sundry Smith's and other Tools shipt on board the

The Articles came out right except, one eleven Inch half round 
rough File deficient. He requests you will send by one of the 
first Vessels proper Tools for boring Pumps, I suppose there must 
be bits of different Sizes but your Block Maker will give you the 
best Information, these Tools are wanted for the use of our Planta- 
tion where there are no Pump Makers, Also, two of the very best 
Philadelphia made Carpenter's broad Axes. We suspend saying 
any thing more respecting Horses, being informed by a Friend of 
his expectation of a string of five and forty from Chicasaw Indian 
Nation, which are generally esteemed as good Horses as any in 


I am glad to hear of your perfect recovery from the Sickness 
which had interrupted you and wish you a very long continuance 
of health. 

Our Summer has been pretty moderate. My Father kept me 
in Charleston whilst he exposed himself as I thought a little too 
much in the Country, yet I have not escaped two or three strokes 
of the Fever, but an Emetic and close application to Bark sett me 
up again and I am now very well, so well that I begin to think 
Matrimony an Event which may onetime or other happen, when- 
ever it does, as you honor me by interesting yourself in that point, 
I shall with pleasure communicate early Notice. But my good 
friend I wish to get a house a little before I take a Wife, I have 
some prospect of having the house before many Months are over. 

We are now arrived at our Harvest time, the Weather is pretty 
fine, if it continues so a fortnight longer I hope We shall make 
upwards of five hundred Barrels of Rice, great quantity of Indian 
Corn and Peas, and from three to five thousand of good Indigo, 
but a Gale of Wind which We call a Hurricane or very heavy 
falls of Rain which too frequently happen at this critical Season 
would overset one half. Let us wish therefore for fair Weather.

2d November 1785 
My dear friend, 

I have been of late a good deal plagued with the Gout too much 
in the upper Works, my present indisposition is such as obliges 
me to borrow a hand for acknowledging and thanking you for 
your very kind Letter of the 18th Ulto. I can't stoop to a writing 
table without great pain and uneasiness. 

The non arrival of the Pump Borer is no great disappointment, 
it will come time enough a Month hence. 


Four Barrels of Apples at one time is too much for a family 
however the Ladies to whom you sent so many desire me to return 
their Compliments and thanks, and to say that you have enabled 
them to treat a great many of their Friends, you say nothing 
about the freight, but I shall send and offer to pay it to Capt. 
Strong to morrow morning. I will request you to send on my 
proper Account two Barrels of the best Mew-Town Pippins, and 
a half Barrel of the very finest Flour by the next opportunity. I 
feel more than half sorry that my friend Dr. Franklin has accepted 
of the Presidency of your State as it may be the last Act of his Life. 
But Alas! what is human Life? Vanity and Vexation of Spirit. 

Inclosed I trouble you with two Letters, the one to Mr. James 
Futterel I beg you will forward by the first opportunity to any 
part of England, the other to W. Fisher Esq. be pleased to send 
to him. this gentleman lately arrived from England with his Son 
in Law Dr. Rusto and Family, and I believe may be heard of at 
Mr. Robert Morris's. 

Do you think I could charter a double decked Vessel at or 
under £3 SterHng per Ton in your City to load here with a Cargo 
of 4 or 500 Barrels Rice and to proceed to London, Bordeaux, 
Nantes or Harvre de Grace as I might determine, upon her arrival. 
If you think it practicable I shall enlarge upon the Subject when 
I hear from you. My Crop will be about 500 Barrels and ready 
for Shipping some time in February. I should desire the Vessel 
to load at my Landing about forty Miles up Cooper River, a 
very safe Navigation and would save her a good deal of Town 

With the CompHments of the whole family to Mrs. Bell and 
yourself, I remain. Dear Sir,

Mepkin Plantation - 

30 Miles from Charleston on Cowper [sic] River. 
Dear Sir. 

The day before yesterday I received by express from Charleston 
your very friendly and obliging Letters of 22d and 25 Ulto. with 
Bills of Loading and an Acct. for Apples, Pump Borers and Axes 
the whole amounting to £23 19.10. to the Cr. of your Acct. — also 
Wm Pearce & Co's Protested Bill for £180 Sterling. 

• The Laurens arms as used on the book plate of Edward Rutedge Laurens 
are: Sa: three doves ar. rising Crest: on a wreath argent and gules, two arms 
pprr embowed holding a chaplet. Motto: What is is best. 


The articles Miss Laurens informs me were landed except the 
flour and that would be the next day, no doubt the file will be 
found in the Case with the borers, your kindly adding 2 Barrells of 
Apples enables us to give away two — four are too many at a time 
for any family in this Climate. I thank you for forwarding my 
Letters to London and to Mr. Fisher. 

I hope the Protested Bill is not on your own Account I shall 
use my utmost diligence to recover the Amount but if the endorser 
is not General Nathaniel Greene we shall find it extremely difficult 
to extract Sterling Money from Georgia; from the General there 
is some expectance. 

The depredations commited by time and by both parties in the 
late War on all the buildings upon my settlements at this place, 
demanded several new Houses and immediate very great repairs 
to the rest, hence we are very backward in cleaning out a Crop 
of about 500 Barr'ls Rice which I shall want a Ship to take away 
but shall not be ready for her till late in February, I must there- 
fore thank you for the trouble you have been at in your late 
enquiries and postpone the business to a future day, perhaps the 
beginning of January, when I shall see my way more clearly and 
probably may then be competent to name several Ports at the 
Charterers option. 

Your friend's information respecting your fellow Traveller was 
rather premature, he has not been fitting up any House — I have 
lately presented him with a valuable Plantation and necessary 
Laboures on Santee River 42 Miles higher than this, which will 
for sometime engage his attention, particularly to repair or rebuild 
the dwelling House and several out houses which have suffered 
as those above mentioned, if in the m.ean time he will provide the 
best furniture for the House, he will act consistently with my 
advice and my earnest wishes, our friend is present, expresses his 
obligation for the Interest you take in this important business and 
desires to join with me in affectionate and respectful Compli- 
ments to Mr. and Mrs. Bell 

Accept my special acknowledgements for your friendly solicitude 
for my health, thank God I am at present well except for that 
degree of debility to which the Gout has subjected and which I 
must submit to, through Life, yet if you were to see me trudging 
every day up and down these Hills, you would question the fact, 


but SO it is, and I return in the Evening weary as a Dog from a 
day's hunt. 

I shall desire a friend in Charleston to put on board one of the 
Philadelphia Ships two Barrels of our Carolina Potatoes which I 
beg Mrs. Bell will do me the honor to accept, and if I could send 
it in time I would add a small Barrel of as nice Rice as ever was 
seen but this goes by a special messenger, to catch one of these 
Vessels who are never long in Port, the Rice will be reserved for 
a future opportunity. 

I was on the point of concluding when our young friend re- 
minded me, ''we want three ploughs for Indian Corn Land com- 
plete with two Shares and Coulters to each frame to be the very 
best in all respects and large Shares," 

"three Horse hoe plough Irons of one size the largest used, 
without frames," 

I request these My Dear friend to be Shiped by the earliest 
opportunity and further oblige. 

Your affectionate and faithful humble Servant 

Henry Laurens.

By D. E, LIuGER Smith 

In British Family Antiquity by William Playfair, Volume VIII, 
published in 1811, we find an account of this ancient family of 
Nisbett of that Ilk and of its cadet branch known as the Nisbetts 
of Dean. 

The family was of very high antiquity, taking its name from the 
lands of Nisbett in the shire of Berwick. 

This, Mr. Playfair tells us, was ''an ancient denomination; for, 
''in the donation of King Edgar, the son of Malcolm Canmore (in 
"whose reign surnames first became hereditary) to the monks of 
"Dunfermline, to pray for the Soul of his father, among other 
"lands he gives those of Nisbett, where the Castle of Nisbett 
"stood, memorable in Scottish history for the fatal overthrow 
"given by the English by the assistance of the then rebel Earl of 
"March to the flower of the youth of the Lothian. 

"Sir Alexander Nisbett of that Ilk afterwards demolished the 
"castle of Nisbett and built his mansion in its place." 

The names of many of the family appear successively in the 
records, until Alexander Nisbett, who made an interesting mar- 
riage with Helen Rutherford, and received from James IV a 
charter of the land of Brighamshields to himself and his spouse 
in the year 1506. 

Then after 1603 we find of the family two representatives. 
(A) The elder bore the constantly recurring name of Alexander, 
and (B) the younger, Patrick Nisbett of Dean, was crea.ted a 
Baronet on 2nd December 1612. 

During the Great Rebellion the men of the elder line sided with 
King Charles and died, one on the Scaffold, some in exile, and some 
in battle. The last male of this line was Mr. Alexander Nisbett, 
a learned Antiquary and Herald, who wrote "The System of 
Heraldry." He died without issue, and after his death Sir John 
Nisbett of Dean "was allowed by authority to carry the supporters 
of the principal arms of Nisbett of that Ilk," thus marking him 
as the chief of his name. 



The last Sir John, of the elder line of Sir Patrick's descendants, 
died at some time previous to 13 Oct. 1749, which is the date of a 
''last Bond and provision" executed by his successor, Sir Alexander 
Nisbett, a few days before he left North Britain to return to Caro- 
lina, where he had acquired and given name to the well known 
estate or plantation on Cooper River, still called Dean Hall. 

Before beginning the account of the three generations of these 
Nisbetts of Dean Hall in Carolina, it may be well to give an 
abstract of this codicil to the above mentioned last Bond and 
provision, recorded in the Probate Court in Charleston, Vol. 1752- 
56, page 121. 

Sir Alexander Nisbett of Dean Baronet 
— for love of wife Dame Mary Nisbett and two younger sons 

John and Alexander — codicil to last bond and provision executed 

by me 13 October 1749 a few days before I left North Britain 
— to wife Dame Mary Nisbett upon death of Dame Ann Myrton 

Nisbett, relict of late Sir John Nisbett — jointure house, garden &c 
— to 2nd Son John Nisbett one half of all lands and negroes in 

South Carolina upon his giving up right to £500 in said bond &c 
— to 3rd Son Alexander one half land and negroes in said province 
— if either decline to go to South Carolina and live he is to be 

educated out of the rent of the Dean — to be repaid to eldest 

brother Henry Nisbett when he is 21, 
— if either should decline to live in South Carolina I bequeath to 

him £500 Sterling out of Estate of Dean &c, &c. 
— to eldest son Henry Nisbett real and personal estate in Britain 

and elsewhere 
— executors wife Dame Mary Nisbett 

Mr. George Seaman, Merchant 
and Mr. Robert Hume, planter / 

in South Carolina " -. 

dated 16 August 1753 — proved 1753 

Mr. George Seaman, here named as executor, was a Scotch 
merchant and planter of large means, who apparently came from 
Leith. He married 2 May, 1750 the widow of William Allen of 
Thorogood and thus became the stepfather of Elizabeth Allen, 
who married 3 May, 1759 John Deas. 

The latter was born 29 Jan. 1735, probably in Leith, and came 
to Carolina in 1749. His interesting connection with this narra- 
tive will be shown later. 



Alexander Nisbett came to Carolina at some date before 1725, 
for in that year he bought certain contiguous tracts of land to 
which plantation he gave the name of Dean Hall, evidently taken 
from the estate of Dean in Scotland. What his business was has 
not been shown, but he held, as shown by the record, quite a 
number of mortgages, making it evident that he controlled or had 
the use of a good deal of money. 

He married Mary Rutherfurd, daughter of Sir John Rutherfurd, 
and sister of Mr. Robert Rutherfurd later of Fairnington and of 
Mr. Walter Rutherfurd of New York. Mr. Robert Rutherfurd 
died 1794 and Mr. Walter Rutherfurd in 1804. 

Of Sir Alexander's eldest son Henry nothing is known, but as 
the baronetcy seems to have been held in 1764 by his second son 
John, it must be presumed that Henry either predeceased his 
father or died without male issue. 

Of the youngest son Alexander nothing appears on the records 
in Carolina. 

From a mortgage recorded in Charles Town in the Mesne 
Conveyance Ofhce, dated 15 Dec. 1744 (See Book BB, p. 44), 
it is recited that the land had been conveyed to Anthony White, Jr. 
by Alexander Nisbett, late of Charles Town, through his Attorneys 
James Michie and James Akin. It may be inferred that he had 
not then succeeded to the Baronetcy and that he was then prob- 
ably in Britain. 

It may be interesting to remember that this James Michie was 
Speaker of the Commons House in 1753-4, Member of the King's 
Council in 1756, and Chief Justice in 1759. (See McCrady's 
South Carolina under the Royal Government). 

At what date Sir Alexander returned to South Carolina is 
not known. 

In the South Carolina Gazette of 8th October, 1753, we find a 
very short notice of his death as follows: ''Yesterday died Sir 
Alexander Nisbett;" and in the Register of St. Philip's Parish we 
find '4753— Oct. 8— Then was buried Sir Alexander Nisbett." 

Lady Nisbett must have been in Charles Town at this time, 
for on 8 May, 1754 Mrs. Manigault entered in her diary a visit 
from her. (See So. Ca. Hist. Mag. Vol. 20— p. 58.) 


It was thought by Playfair in his account of the Nisbetts of 
Dean that Sir John Nisbett, who in 1764 was a cornet in the 2nd 
or Royal North British Dragoons, was the eldest son of Sir Alex- 
ander. In point of fact he seems to have been the second son. 

Of this Sir John we catch frequent glimpses in the correspond- 
ence of his uncles Robert and Walter Rutherfurd; the first 
writing from Britain, the latter from New York at various dates 
between 1778 and 1799. These items we owe to the kindness of 
Mr. Livingston Rutherfurd, a great great grandson of Walter. 

(Authority for items from this source will be given as Rutherfurd 

When Sir John retired from the British Army we do not know, 
but it seems probable that it was at some time before 1769. 

His wife was a French woman named Claudine Favre, by whom 
he had two sons — his successor John, and Alexander, the latter of 
whom was born in 1772, as we learn from his tombstone in the 
Strawberry Churchyard on Cooper River. John appears to have 
been born in 1768 or 1769, as his uncle Robert writes of him in 
February 1790 that he was now of age. 

In 1777, or perhaps early in 1778, we find Sir John and his 
family in America with his uncle Walter Rutherfurd. Endeavor- 
ing to make his way from the north to Carolina he was ''lost in 
going there with his family except his two sons whom he left with" 
Mr. Walter Rutherfurd. 

This may suggest the object of a visit made by Mr. John Ruther- 
furd, a son of Walter, to CaroHna about the middle of 1778. We 
find this visit mentioned in a letter from John Deas to the same 
John Rutherfurd, (born 20 Sept. 1760 died 23 Feb. 1840). Mr. 
Livingston Rutherfurd's full extracts from this letter we give here 
for their great local interest.

Dear Sir, 

Your very obliging favour of 30th Sept, with copy of that of 
11th July (the original of which never has come to hand) I duly 
received & should have made a more punctual Reply, had not a 
Variety of Avocation public & private prevented, as no doubt 
you have heard of our late Invasion you can from thence judge 


the Confusion we were in whilst it lasted. My family fled to the 
X X X X X, whilst I march to Town & mounted the Lines where I 
lived on rations and slept on the land till I was tired x x x x x 

Amongst those of our Friends that have fallen in this Campaign 
you will lament honest Ben Huger and the more so when I ac- 
quaint you it was by the Fire of our own People from the Lines 
on the night of the supposed Attack. Good God! what a Scene 
that was! I have often spoke of the Grand Fire Works I saw at 
Versailles on the marriage of the present King, but this excelled 
it all, the other was a Feu de Joye this was a Feu d' Enfer, I 
believe I must call it, for none but his Infernal Majesty could be 
at the bottom of this cursed Quarrel. 

No doubt you have heard of the Retreat of the Enemy soon 
thereafter & we have lately had the very agreeable Intelligence 
that Count d'Estaing with a formidable Fleet & a number of 
troops are arrived on our Coast, from whence we expect the 
recovery of Georgia & perhaps the conquest of St. Augustine, at 
any rate we flatter ourselves with the Prospect of having a quiet 
Winter in this Quarter, & some faint hopes that a Peace in the 
Spring may be the result of ail this Hurly-Burly. 

I should have told you that the enemy made very free with my 
House & Stock &c at Combahee, my People luckily took to their 
heels, except three who thought proper to join the Enemy, & a 
scouting party made an Incursion into Goose Creek & plundered 
several houses, particularly Mr. Middleton's and Thorogood, 
where they took everything they fancied & carried away all my 
Horses & 3 negro Boys — so you see I have had my share of Losses 
as well as Fatigue x x x x x 

I thank you for the care you took of my Letters I have since 
heard had got safe to hand with our young Friends your Cousins, 
by which your Aunt Lady Nisbett is greatly cheered up, she wrote 
me a long letter upon it & I can see she is in pretty good spirits. 
I am happy to find they expect to prove Sir John's marriage & of 
course establish the legitimacy of the poor innocent children

I should have mentioned my niece being married to Mr. Mid- 
dleton of Crowfield. I don't recollect if he was of your acquaint- 
ance when here, tho I believe he was at our Clubb at Goose 
Creek the day you were there — we were all hands celebrating 


their nuptials at Thorogood (if dancing can be called so) when the 
news of Georgia being invaded came to hand and spoiled our sport. 

I am sorry to add that it has been our misfortune to lose Mr. 
Middleton last month occasioned I believe by the Fatigues of our 
Summer's Employ in Town & an unlucky Jaunt he took into 
Georgia in quest of some of his People that had been taken away 
by the Enemy x x x x x 

This melancholy Event has occasioned much distress in my 
Family & being left one of his Executors takes up much of my 
time X X X X X my niece Middleton is come Home again to our

him, he is this moment at my knee beating an old Canister by

^ John Deas 

From the Rutherfurd Letters we learn that the two orphan 
Nisbetts reached their Grandmother, Dame Mary Nisbett, at 
some time between July 1778 and April 1779. They are described 
in 1780 by their grand-uncle Robert Rutherfurd as ''fine promising 
boys;" steps had previously been taken to find proofs of the mar- 
riage of Sir John, for which purpose an agent had been sent to 
France. And the writer continues: "Our poor Sister is so Fond 
of the Boys and so anxious and Tender a Temper that I fear she 
will easily break her Heart if Things do not go well for Them." 

During the period from 1779 to 1797 it is chiefly the Ruther- 
furd Letters which enable us to follow the fate of the two Nisbett 
boys, who appear to have owed to the extraordinary kindness and 
care of their two granduncles their escape from the Sea of troubles 
that threatened to overwhelm, them. 

In South Carolina, we find two important mentions of them. 
First, the Legislature was called by Governor John Rutledge to 
meet at Jacksonborough, at a distance of only about 35 miles 
from Charles Town then held by the British. Convening in 
January 1782, it passed the Confiscation Act in retaliation for the 
actions of the British Authorities. In this act, list No. 1 contained 


the names of those known to be subjects of his Britannic Majesty, 
and in this Hst was included the ''Devisees or heirs of Sir John 
Nisbett." But in March 1783 the ''Heirs of Sir John Nisbett" 
were taken off the Confiscation List. It is to be presumed that 
the Dean Hall plantation and other property were then restored 
by the Commissioners to the agent of the Nisbetts, and this agent 
was apparently John Deas before mentioned. 

As the war had been waged by both combatants with great 
severity and damage to property it does not seem strange that in 
August 1784 Mr. Robert Rutherfurd should have written that in 
these seven or eight years past only one remittance of £150 had 
come from the Nisbett property. 

Although out of the course of the narrative, it may be well to 
state here that the young Sir John Nisbett sailed from Greenock 
for New York about the beginning of May 1787. 

It will also be well now to outline as far as possible their history 
in Europe up to that date. 

From a letter dated 31 March 1780 it is learned that the agent 
at Dean had not been able from ill health to sign receipts for the 
rents due by the tenants, and Lady Nisbett feared to try to get 
another appointed before she was in possession of evidence of the 
marriage of the late Sir John; but during the summer of 1781, the 
son, Sir John, was served Heir of his father without opposition, 
and Mr. Robert Rutherfurd was appointed his Tutor or Guardian 
by the Court. In 1783 it was thought by their guardian that the 
boys were getting the better of their grandmother and Sir John 
was sent to St. Andrews, and Alexander to an Academy at Perth. 
Sir John is described as exceedingly handsome in his person with 
Spirits and Talent, but with a "Haughty Stubbornness of Temper." 

He seems inclined to enter the Army, but his Tutor fears that 
may be of prejudice to him with the Government at Carolina, to 
which place it might be preferable that he should go as soon as 
he could be trusted. 

But by August 1784 Sir John carried out his wish to enter the 
army, and an Ensigncy was purchased for him in the 59th Regi- 
ment then stationed at Gibraltar. He there reported for duty 
where he remained for about eighteen months. Being expensively 
inclined he spent more than his small fortune would allow of, 
vs^hich was only £100 a year besides his pay, as no money was 


coming from Carolina. ''He is a perfect Adonis, particularly 
beautiful," added his uncle. 

Efforts to place Alexander in a mercantile house in Glasgow, 
or London, or Bristol, or Holland failed because apparently too 
high an Apprentice Fee was demanded. 

We are thus brought to the date at which Sir John sailed for 
New York as stated above, viz: May 1787. 

Under date of 28 Feb. 1790 Mr. Robert Rutherfurd wrote to 
his brother Walter as follows : 

**I am not fond of thinking much or saying anything about the 
*'Nisbetts But still We must and ought to think of them and 
"endeavor to do them any good that may be in our power and 
"they may be pleased to permit. Sir John is now of age and 
"Lady N. had a short letter from him lately after a long Time 
"that neither he nor Alex, had wrote a word to her. It is dated 
"from Charlestown He tells her he was returned from North 
"Carolina and that when he could settle his affairs and fall upon 
"some means to get remittances regularly he would come to this 
"Country. That Alex was to get 1/2 the negroes and settle 
"with them on some better and more healthy Place. But he does 
"not say whether that is to be on his Lands or not. There are no 
"letters from Alex or Mr. Deas. 

"Both are much to be pitied for being so weak thoughtless and 
"silly, incapable of any exertion from listlessness and indolence, 
"as if it was only the business of other People to take Care of 
"them and feed them like children. 

Of Alexander the letter says further: ""-- - 

"He has nothing in the World but his Share in the negroes 
"and Stocks on the Plantation in Carolina and what his Brother 
"Sir John pleases to allow him in the meantime. This can be 
"but little, since the whole Dean Estate with the House after 
"deducting the Burthens upon it does not amount to more than 
"£160 a year and no money comes from Mr. Deas. Sir John has 
"hitherto been so good as to allow him £40 or £50 a year." 

Sir John's presence in Charleston and also the fact that he 
was then of age is shown by a conveyance recorded in the Mesne 
Conveyance Office there, Book D 6, page 471, dated July 1790. 
In this "Sir John Nisbett Bart, late of the Kingdom of Great 
Britain but now of South Carolina" conveyed to Jacob Sass a 


lot of land on Queen St., which his grandfather, Sir Alexander, 
had acquired in May 1753. 

It is interesting to note that the witnesses to Sir John's deed 
were Isaac Huger, Jr. and Wm. Allen Deas, a son of John Deas. 

But now the storm, which for a dozen years had been threaten- 
ing the young Nisbetts, was to break upon them, and both of 
their long-suffering granduncles were again called upon to show 
their enduring kindliness. For in Mar. 1790 they learn that John 
Rutherfurd of Hunthill, a nephew of theirs, was expected to com- 
mence proceedings for the purpose of disputing their legitimacy, 
and it was believed that Mrs. Nisbett of Dirleton was supplying 
the money to conduct the suit. The Dirleton family were very 
rich and had as yet no heirs male, and failing such, Sir John would 
under the Entail succeed to them. 

These troubles, or perhaps the lack of money, may account 
for the visits of Sir John to Mr. Walter Rutherfurd in August 1790 
and November 1791. The legal procedure must have been very 
slow, for in Jany. 1793 the "pursuers" produced witnesses to 
prove that the late Sir John had not acknowledged his marriage 
while in Scotland, whereupon application was made to the Court 
for a Commission to examine Mr. Walter Rutherfurd and Mrs. 
Rutherfurd in America. 

The proverbial "law's delay" seems to have held good in this 
suit, for only on 15th Oct. 1797 does a letter from Walter Ruther- 
furd tell us: 

"I have a letter from Nelly Rutherfurd x x x x x have lost my 
"very dear sister Nisbett x x x x x had been ailing sometime, and 
"a paralitic stroke occasioned her death twelve hours after the 
"important Cause of the legitimacy of the Nisbetts was decided 
"in their Favour unanimously by the Lords of Session. My 
"evidence was the only Proof." 

In Feb. 1796 at the meeting of the South CaroHna Jockey Club 
(see page 18 of History of the Turf in South CaroHna) there was a 
match race between Sir John Nisbett of Dean Hall and John 
Randolph of Roanoke, each gentleman riding his own horse. 
Mr. Randolph won the race after an exciting struggle. But the 
historian tells us that tradition said that Sir John, "who was a 
very elegant gentleman," "won the prize from, beauty's eyes," for 
that many of the fair watchers of the race declared that, though 


Mr, Randolph had won the race, they much preferred Sir John 
in a match. 

In October 1797 we read in the Gazette of the marriage of 
Sir John to Maria, daughter of Col. William Alston of Waccamaw 
and Charleston by his first marriage to Mary Ashe. 

Col. Alston was a noted patron of the turf in South Carolina, 
and bred on his Waccamaw plantation many fine Thorough-bred 
horses. President Washington visited him at this plantation, 
when he came to Carolina in 1791. 

His first wife, married 13 Feb. 1777, the mother of Lady Nisbett, 
was the daughter of John Baptista Ashe, Brig.-Gen. North Caro- 
lina State Troops, by his wife Rebecca Moore, who was a daughter 
of Col. Maurice Moore and grand-daughter of James Moore, 
governor of Carolina 1700-1702. These two families of Ashe and 
Moore were very prominent during the entire Colonial period both 
in North Carolina and South Carolina. 

Occasional glimpses of Sir John and Dame Maria Nisbett are 
caught in the ^'Rutherfurd Letters." 

In April 1798, we find them planning a visit to Scotland, and 
they are advised to go North by the Orkneys to Leith, or else by 
a Glasgow ship, so as to avoid the enemy in the Channel. 

And again we learn that the Laird (Mr. Walter Rutherfurd's 
nephew) in May 1799 is ''much displeased with Sir John Nisbett 
who dashes away at London, Bath, &c. and comes not near his 
Estates, wishes him with his wife, or She with him as young folks 
should be." 

Apparently Lady Nisbett was then in Carolina, for in June 1799 
Mr. Horry, who arrived lately thence in New York, brought the 
news that Lady Nisbett had a fine boy and was impatient for her 
knight's arrival. Nevertheless Sir John was still in Britain, and 
had sent for Alic on Dirleton's account, who wished their assistance 
in breaking his entail, for he had only a daughter, and the Dean 
family was next Heirs of Entail to this estate which was called 
£6000 a year. 

Mr. William Hamilton Nisbett's [of Dirleton] daughter was 
married to the Earl of Elgin, who was but lately returned from his 
Embassy at Vienna. 

The exact relationship of the then Sir John Nisbett to Mr. 
Nisbett of Dirleton does not appear though doubtless a very little 
research in North Britain would show it. 


It may be well to quote here what Playfair tells us about the 
two cadet branches of the Dean family. The grandfather of 
Sir Alexander of Dean and of Dean Hall in South Carolina was 
Henry Nisbett who left three sons (1) James, the father of Sir 

Alexander, (2) Nisbett whose descendants were called 

*'of Craigintinie," (3) Nisbett, whose descendants were 

called "of Dirleton." The two last named families bore the arms 
of Dean with differences to show cadency. 

A plantation in Georgetown County on Peedee River is still 
called ''Dirleton," but it is not known by whom or when it was 

Of the lives of Sir John and Dame Maria Nisbett between 1799 
and May 1821 little is known. He continued through that time 
to own Dean Hall, but most probably lived in Britain until the 
last date when he sold Dean Hall plantation to Mr. William A. 

But his brother Alexander appears to have remained in Caro- 
lina, and at his death on 27 January 1813 in his 42nd year resided 
on the Dean Hall plantation, as shown by the inscription on his 
tombstone at Strawberry Chapel on the Cooper River. 

In his will, dated 3 March 1812, he described himself as ''of 
Dean Hall, in St. John's Parish, South Carolina" and left his whole 
estate real and personal to his wife Abigail, who also was named 
sole Executrix. What Mrs. Nisbett's maiden name was does not 
appear, but in her will, proved in 1819, she mentions a niece Laura 
Kelly, and a half-sister, Mrs. EHzabeth Kelly, while her daughter, 
Caroline M. Nisbett is named as residuary legatee and Sole execu- 
trix. The executrix qualified as Caroline M. Philippe, late Nisbett. 

From deeds on record Jean B. Philippe and wife Caroline 
Matilda Philippe, before marriage called Caroline M. Nisbett, 
conveyed in 1820 to Francis Laborde a large lot on Meeting and 
Columbus Streets, known as the Botanic Garden, which, apparently 
after some litigation, had passed to her under the will of her 
mother, Mrs. Abigail Nisbett. 

The Dean Hall plantation remained in the possession of Sir 
John Nisbett until 1 May 1821. 

On that date Sir John Nisbett of Dean in Scotland with Dame 
Maria Nisbett his wife by his Attorney William Meen (sic) con- 
veyed for a consideration of $40,000 to William A. Carson the 
Dean Hall plantation of 3100 acres. 


Dame Maria Nisbett seems to have been then in South Carolina, 
for she renounced dower &c before Ehhu Hall Bay, one of the 
judges of said State. ^ ' V /^ 

The receipt for the money secured by the mortgage then given 
by Carson was signed on 10 April 1829 by James L. Petigru, by 
virtue of a power of attorney from John Rutherford, and Charles, 
Lord Sinclair, trustees and executors of Sir John Nisbett, de- 
ceased, given to Robert Scott and John Balfour of Savannah, who 
had appointed J. L. Petigru as their substitute. 

This power of attorney is recorded in the Secretary of State's 
ofhce in Columbia in book H 5, and recites that Sir John's will 
was proved in the Court of the Archbishop of Canterbury on 

28 June 1828, thus giving an approximate date for his death. 
Lord Sinclair was a relative of Sir John through the Ruther- 

furds, for we learn from Burke's Peerage that the 11th Lord 
Sinclair married in 1763 Elizabeth, daughter of John Ruther- 
ford Esq. of Edgerston, Roxburgh, and grand-daughter of Sir 
John Rutherford, and apparently a niece of Robert and Walter 
Rutherfurd, from whose letters so much valuable information has 
come to us. 

The last mention of Maria, Lady Nisbett, is in her father's 
will — Col. William Alston died 26 June 1839 in his 83rd year. 
(See S. C. Hist. Mag. Vol. XII— p. 40) and in his will dated 

29 Nov. 1838 mentions his daughter Lady Maria Nisbett, widow 
of Sir John Nisbett now wife of Dr. John Murray. 

This appears to close the connection of the Nisbetts of Dean 
with South Carolina. 

The extraordinary and persistent kindness and solicitude shown 
by the two Rutherfurd brothers to their nephew Sir John Nisbett 
and to his sons. Sir John and Alexander Nisbett, must necessarily 
attract interest to themselves. Luckily we are enabled to supply 
from ''Family Records and Events" by Mr. Livingston Ruther- 
furd some information about their careers. 

The elder, Robert Rutherfurd, the 4th son of Sir John Ruther- 
furd, was born on the 30th of May, 1719, and at an early age 
received in London his business education. Thence he went to 
Leghorn, Italy, where in course of time he became a partner in 
the banking-house of Jackson and Rutherfurd. Appointed in 
1768 by Catherine II of Russia her financial agent in the Mediter- 


ranean, he later declined promotion in the Treasury at St. Peters- 
burg, and was by her raised to the dignity of a Russian Baron 
for himself and his descendants. 

Returning to Great Britain in 1777, he settled on the Estate of 
Fairnington in Roxburghshire. He died unmarried and without 
issue in 1794. 

Walter Rutherfurd was the sixth son of Sir John, and entered 
the British Army at the age of fifteen. He vv^as ordered to America 
in 1756, and we find him a Captain in the 60th, or Royal Ameri- 
cans, in which regiment his eldest brother, John Rutherfurd, held 
the rank of Major. The latter was killed in the disastrous battle 
of Ticonderoga on 6th July, 1758. Walter married in 1758 
Catherine Alexander, widow of Elisha Parker, by whom he became 
the progenitor of the well-known Rutherfurd family of New York. 
Her brother, William Alexander, was a distinguished officer in the 
Continental Line of the Revolution, in the history of which we 
often find him mentioned as Major-General Lord Sterling. 

Walter Rutherfurd had reached the rank of Major before he 
retired from the British Army. A reproduction of his portrait 
in uniform may be found in Vol. II of the Annals of the King's 
Royal Rifle Corps, by Lieut. Col. Lewis Butler, page 336, which, 
however, is erroneously designated as the portrait of his brother, 
Major John Rutherfurd. He died the 10th of January, 1804.

In 1749 Rev. John Giessendanner, who had been a Dissenter 
minister in Orangeburgh Township theretofore, went to England 
in order to be ordained to the Episcopal ministry. In order to 
strengthen his case a petition in his behalf was presented to His 
Majesty's Council of South Carolina by citizens of Orangeburgh 
Township. A copy of this petition was made by William Back- 
shell, acting Secretary of the province, for Mr. Giessendanner to 
take with him. It bears evidence that Backshell was the poor 
copyist that Gov. Glen characterized him as on several occasions. 
This copy is now in Fulham Palace, London, and the following 
transcript thereof was procured therefrom by Mr. E. Alfred Jones, 
of London, for A. S. Salley, Jr. 

To his Excellency James Glen Esq"". Captain General Gov- 
ernor and Commander in Chief in and over his Majestys 
Province of South Carolina and to the Members of His 
Majestys Honourable Council. 

The Petition of the Inhabitants of Orang'burgh Humbly Sheweth 

That your Petitioners have been now upwards of Eleven Years 
Inhabitants of this Province^ and increased to about ninety Famelys 
besides an agreeable Prospect of growing youth and under the 
expectation of Enjoying the same Priviledges and Imunitys in 
Society which their Fellow Subjects do Enjoy have at all time 
Willingly and ChearfuUy contributed their assistance toward the 
Support and preservation of the Goverment — 

That they hetherto have had the misfortune of being deprived 
of having a Parson Qualifyed by his Lordship the Bishop in order 
to be duly authorized to promote true Religion and Virtue among 
them — and to instruct their Younger ones in the Principles of their 
Christian Religion — 

That John Giessendanner hath these Nine Years Employ'd 
his time and Study to Officiate in the ministerial office and to 
Preach the Gospel to their great Satisfaction — 

^ This petition was evidently prepared several years before 1749, as many 
of the signers had been in the province over thirteen years and several even 
longer. (See Salley's History of Orangeburg County, Orangeburg, S. C, 1898.) 



That the same is a man of Piety and Knowledge in the holy 
Scriptures and always behaved himself with Sobriety Honesty and 
Decency, Encouraging Virtue and reproving Vice — 

That Your Petitioners knowing his Merit and Commendable 
Character have unanimously consented to gather to give him a 
Vocation to the Ministerial Function among them — 

That one M^. Barth°. Zuberbuller having some years agone 
obtained a Vocation to this Township and met with favourable 
Assistance from the Goverment hath since his arrival from England 
in CaroHna not shewn his Person here but Engaged himself to the 
Service of the Coloney of Georgia very much to Your Petitioners 
disappointment — 

That the said John Gessendanner being now resolved by the 
leave of Providence with the approbation of Your Excellency and 
Honours and the Assistance of His Friends to Embark for London 
in Order to be duly quallified for that Purpose — 

Your Pet"', therefore humbly Pray Your Excellency and 
Honours to take their above Grievance into your serious 
Consideration and to be pleased to grant the said John 
Gessendanner such recomendation and Ratification of this our 
Vocation as Your Excellency and Honours will think requisite 
and Necessary for his better Succeeding in the Same 
And Your Petitioners as in Duty bound shall ever Pray &c^. &c*.

Charleston So Carolina 
^ ^ 9th Febry 1792. 

Dear Sir 

My last trouble to you is dated the 12th Janry & went by the 
Fame Capt. Vickery for Baltimore, it contained a Memorial to 
the House of Representatives on the report of the Secretary of 
War respecting my claim on the United States together with an 
Affidavit ascertaining the price of Rough Rice.^ 

A copy of my Said address with copy of the Memorial & Affi- 
davit were forwarded by Mr. Decker by the hands of a Friend of 
his who was to land in Virginia & travel directly to Philadelphia 
wherefore I hope & trust at least one set of those Papers have 
reached you before this day & that the Memorial will have the 
desired effect. 

It is exceedingly mortifying to me to be debarred of an Oppor- 
tunity of even yet transmitting William Cowles & Co's Accounts. 
After having received them from the Second Scrivener & Account- 
ant I put them into the hands of a third for making a careful 

1 Ten thousand bushels rice furnished the Continental troops in 1777. 
(Wallace Life of Henry Laurens, p. 427.) 



examination & taking a fair Copy, from this Gentleman I expected 
to receive them on the 4th. Inst, but he now informs me they will 
not be finished before the 17th. this is truly vexatios — You will 
suppose our Scriveners are very Busy People. Some Years ago I 
could have finished the whole Business with my own hands in 
two days. 

With regard to Mr. Fisher's Accounts I have no new lights, I 
can only affirm to the Letter which I writ to the Young Fishers a 
Copy of which is in your hands excepting that in the consign- 
ments for which they Charge me there are no doubt some Out 
standing & some bad Debts of which I cannot be explicit, Before 
I see my former Clerk M'". Warley who transacted all that Business 
when I was in England. When I shall see him is uncertain he is 
at his plantation eighty miles off & probably will not return 
before the warm weather shall drive him to the City, therefore I 
must submit to whatever Arbitrators may determine there is no 
help for it — But I should think no Arbitrators fully considering 
all circumstances will allow them any Interest especially as I can 
fully prove that at the time they pretend a Balance was due by 
me I had many Thousand Pounds Sterling lying in England 
without Interest. I wish an end to all these affairs that there 
might be an end to the trouble which I give you. 

I now take in View your several kind favors the 14th. Sept, 1st. & 
21st. October, 10th. & 16th. Novemb. & 7th. December. 

The Governor wishes Mr. Simons would send him the glasses 
for his Carriage. Your young Friend has finally agreed upon but 
has not yet finished the Business I believe he will Shortly trouble 
you to send him a handsome Carriage. The Turnip Seed & Conk 
shell Buckles came Safe to hand so did the Mill Stones, Linseed 
Oil & Marble Slabs— Of the Wheat & Rye Capt. Walters kept 
back one Barrel of Wheat a great disappointment to me nor has 
he made any Satisfaction for it — I much want the Invoice of the 
Slabs in order to Settle Accounts with my Friend Mr. Sinkler. 
The explanation of the supposed error of £9 — is Satisfactory — 
Mr. Sinkler wants his Chimney Backs & Account. I tell him he 
must have patience tiU your Navigation opens — I am to thank

which I received through Mr, Decker all very good But I am truly 
sorry you should be at so much trouble. 


Cowles & Go's Accounts although I have admitted every article 
to my debit will make a very different appearance from those 
which you sent me I think the Scriveners make Upwards of a 
Thousand Pounds Sterling Balance due to me that one charge of 
loss by Othogrote & Go's ought to be very fully proved before 
it is admitted. My Friend Gowles was a very honest Man but a 
very careless and confused Accountant. 

Mr. Fitzssimons's reason for not allowing Interest on Lieutenant 
Gol. Laurens's account would not be deemed fair or legal if given 
by one private Person to Another — But public Bodies will too 
often be Guilty of Acts which would disgrace a private Gharacter. 
— You will observe that You & I coincide in Opinion that Mr. 
Randolph should peruse my Memorial before it was laid before 
Gongress & it is my earnest & repeated desire that Gentleman 
should be liberally rewarded for all his trouble whether I shall 
recover anything from the Public or not — at the proper Season I 
shall be glad to receive the Bottled Beer which Mr. Decker was 
so good as to write for. 

I thank you for the statement of the Monies received on Ac- 
count of my Grand Daughter I shall be much obliged to you to 
send me Blank-forms of Powers for enabling you to receive the 
Interest due to her & to myself I kept no Gopies of the former 
Powers & I have really forgot what they were — Your Offices or 
Officers are very Gritical & I am afraid of making some Blunder. 

I think I have now gone through Your several obliging favors & 
will detain you no longer But to repeat my acknowledgement of 
Obligation to you my respectful Gompliments to Mrs. Bell & my 
best wishes for Yourself and your whole Family.

Mr. Fitssimons says "Others in similar Business had been paid 
in paper on which there was a heavy Depreciation" I believe I 
might dispute this fact and pi^ove the contrary. But I should be 
glad to know what paper there was to pay in, after the year 178L 


In a word the Services which the young Minister rendered to the 
United States were very great and Universally acknowledged — 
But himself & those Services seem now to be forgotten. As to 
the demand not having been made in proper time the observation 
is Nugatory — Congress never had any Overplus money, they were, 
paying large Interest in France & in Holland. Besides much 
consideration ought to be had for the Orphan of a Zealos Faithful

Dear Sir 

I writ to you very fully the 9th Inst, by Capt. Welsh Copy by 
Capt. Garman, both I believe are still in Port, this I intend by 
Capt. Art, probably tjiey will all sail at the same time. 

Mr. Thomas Nicholls whom you know, he speaks highly of 
your politeness to him in Philadelphia, has just brought me W^". 
Cowles & Co. Accounts which, as a friend he has been so kind as 
to Copy & examine after the second accountants account, in which 
he has found so many errors & after admitting to Cowles & Co's 
Credit every article which they have charged to me, except the 
loss by Oto Grote & Co & calculating Interest according to the 
EngUsh Custom, he makes a Balance of upwards of £2000 Sterling 
due to me. Over & above this Balance there is one article of 
£1096 which appears to be twice charged to my debit, if this 
shall really be so, the difference in my favor will be much increased; 
This £1096 is said to have been paid or passed to the Credit of 
Vanderhorst & Warley per order — I was in England Mr. Warley 


was my Bookkeeper & Attorney the transaction must have been 
under his management & yet he has not passed any such Sum or 
Sums to the Credit of Cowles & Co. if they paid one or both, then 
Vanderhorst & Warley will fall so much in my debt, from this 
consideration as well as for making a State of outstanding or bad 
debts M'". NichoUs advises me to detain the Accounts until I 
can consult M'". Warley personally or by correspondence, I believe 
the former will be necessary as he must have access to my Books, 
nevertheless if you cannot obtain a reasonable time for that 
purpose I shall upon advice from you immediately transmit the 
Accounts as they are at present Stated & submit to what may 

From nearly the same consideration there is a necessity for 
delaying the final settlement of M"". Fisher's Accounts, I wish the 
Gentlemen will consent to a reasonable farther delay — when you 
inform them I have lodged Money in your hands for paying any 
Balance which may be justly due I think they will not refuse, 
instead of drawing Money out of your hands I shall soon add to 
the Sum already there. 

I have twenty four Shares in the branch of the National Bank 
which is to be established in this City for special reasons I am 
disposed to sell them all, I hereby authorize you to make the Sale 
in Philadelphia or New York which Market you shall prefer, 
upon advice from you of such Sale or agreement for Sale I shall 
deliver the Script as it is called to the purchaser's friend here or 
transmit it to you, as this binds me, my Heirs & Executors I 
think the purchasers should pay you, down the Money. The 
Scrip may be said to be in his hand, but if Credit is required till 
the actual delivery the Sale should be to a very Safe & Secure 
Man, you will please to advise me what formahty will be necessary 
in the transfer, I have made first & second Payments I think, 
4800 Dollars but my Papers are at home in the Country.

Dear Sir, 

I am in debt for your obliging favor dated in November last, & 
should have made an earlier acknowledgement, but was induced 
to procrastinate my intention from day to day 'till the present 
hoping to have had occasion of troubling you upon the Business 
which my father hinted in last address to you of the present 
Month. — But before I proceed to this, it is right to thank you for 
the transmission of the Conch-Shell buckles & the miniature 
Picture, both which arrived Safely to hand and in due course. 

My respected friend the Major has written to me & offered 
such reasons for not further insisting to repay him the cost of the 
Ring, that I cannot in any manner refuse being governed by them. 
— Respecting the buckles however my good Sir, you will pardon 
my insisting with you that as you have sent a Duplicate I should 
also pay double; it would be an ungenerous return indeed to 
burthen you with a charge which I ought to bear wholly myself. 
Let me not then I pray by a denial wear the appearance of want 
of generosity to you. — I wish to have put in hand for me immedi- 
ately upon Receipt of this Letter by the best Coach-builder in 
your City, a Coach, of which the following is. a Description. 

It must be large, capable of containing four persons conveniently. 
The Quarters open with fine Glasses & Venetian Spring Bhnds — 
two ample glasses before & behind, which also must have Blinds 
of the same sort. 

The Lining of fine white broad Cloth, with a neat false Lining. 

Large handsome globe Lamps. 

The Colour, coleiir de puce of the most splendid sort without 
any painted border or other ornament of that sort, but a plated 


moulding all around with Suitable Brackets, (which I think is the 
term for those parts which bind the Roof & the sides together.) — 

The Carriage part a perch (not crane-necked) & painted of a 
handsome bright yellow. 

The Box not too lofty & fixed upon a Boot of moderate size. — 

The Leather of the Boot & the Body Japanned, or varnished, 
I do not know which is the more proper term. — 

Two hammer Cloths one a very elegant one, the other plain 
for common use. — or, if you approve it, an oil cloth to cover the 
best hammer cloth in lieu of the plain one. 

The Carriage to be made as easy as possible & as light as is 
consistant with safety. 

Hung at that height that double steps would be sufficient to 
ascend it. — But let the steps be treble, for greater ease. 

A single L. upon each Door pannel as there will be no other 
ornament except this L, it should be made large & if you can 
have it executed in your City, enammeled so as to suit the Colors 
of the carriage. It must be of plate or plated & screwed on by 
small neat screws upon the center of the pannel. 

The fellows of the wheels broad. Something in the stile, if you 
recollect them, of my father's Uttle Phaeton. — The reason of this, 
the carriage rolls, having such wheels, over our Sandy Streets, & 
Sinks not so much into them. 

Harness for four horses, the Leaders to draw with Short braces. — 
This suitable to the Carriage. The Pads & BHnkers to be en- 
graved with a single L. which you know is the first letter of our 
family name. It should be well shaped & handsomely Cut. 

Employ the best Coach-builder on this occasion & let me intreat 
your friendly attention during the Building; It is for the Lady 
who has honored me by consenting to become at some future time, 
my wife. — I have delineated as nearly as I have been able the 
Carriage I wish to have. Perhaps I may committed Errors in 
terms, perhaps made some omissions, if it appears so to you, be 
kind enough to remedy them in your orders to the Builder & to 
understand me generally that I would have something very hand- 
some, elegant & rich without either tawdriness or flash, of the 
newest taste without any extravagance of the fashion. — The cost 
you will regulate, on this head I have only to say, without meaning 
to limit you in the Smallest Degree in your agreement, that I 


certainly would be glad to have the work done on the best terms. 
The Amount of Cost you will please to place to my father's 
account. — 

I do not know who is the best Builder of Carriages in your City, 
I have heard of Simons & Hunter, the latter I beheve built a Coach 
for M''. Rutledge, but you will be able to find out who is at the 
head of his trade, & him I would have employed. — ^The Carriage 
I wish to see here, if possible, in the month of May & early in it. — 

You have shewn me many Acts of friendship but you can hardly 
shew me a greater at present than by bestowing particular Atten- 
tion to the Commission I now trouble you with. — Excuse the 
repetition of address to your friendship, I o^ught not indeed to 
doubt it & do not. — 

With respectful Compliments to Mrs. Bell I conclude & am

Dear Sir, 

Enclosed you will find Copy of my last address to you under 
the 1 7^'^ Ult. by Capt. Art to which I beg leave to refer. Considering 
what weather we have had I think it necessary to trouble you with 
a duplicate. Being very desiros to Settle accounts with the 
Representatives of W°^. Cowles & Co. I have written to Mr. 
Warley to enquire whether he can recollect & explain the articles 
of £1096 mentioned in my last, when I receive his answer which 
will be in a few days I shall send forward the accounts without 
waiting for an investigation of outstanding & bad debts when he 
comes to Town in June — Arbitrators may insert a Salvo for those 
in the Award. 

When I was in Charleston last week I delivered M'". Decker a 
flour Barrel filled with ground nuts for Mrs. Bell he told me the 
Vessel by which they were to be sent would not Sail for a day or 
two otherwise I would have paid my respects to you immediately, 
but unluckily for me she Sail'd that very day, 

I have in my possession a number of Loan Ofiice receipts or 
Certificates amounting in the whole to 56854tVo. Dollars as by 
particular account on the other side will appear. I have been 
offered for these eighteen shillings in the Pound taken altogether, 
but I am informed I can get at least Pound for Pound at Phila- 
delphia or New York — if you can obtain so much or more at either 
place I hereby authorize you to sell them payable & deliverable 
any day between the 5th & 20th of April next & I bind my Heirs 
& Exors to confirm your bargin without delay or damage to you. 

I expect about £1000 St^. more of the same sort for James 
Lauren's Estate which may also be sold at the same time but con- 
ditionally not absolutely lest a disappointment should happen. 

Be pleased to send me by the very first opportunity one Cask 
20 or 25 Gallons Linseed Oil & about five Gallons of best Spirit 
of turpentine in Bottels or Jugs carefully packed. 

My Compliments & best Wishes to Mrs. Bell & all your family.

very kind and obliging Letters of the 7*^. & 22^^. Ult". the latter 
signed by Mr. Joseph Bell which I received three Days ago. 

I very much thank M"". Randolph M"". Smith & yourself for 
your Endeavors to recover for me the Monies due to me by Con-

Randolph I shall take care of that when please God T am well, 
whether he obtains Justice or not. 

Capt. Walker has certainly behaved ver}^ ill with respect to 
the Wheat. I suspect that he spared it here to some friend of his. 

I wish you may finish selling the Script, the terms will be very 
agreeable to me.

What you say with respect to returning my money & advancing 
money for me draws tears from my Eyes & I cannot speak properly

Mepkin 25*'^ April 1792 
Dear Sir, 

Your obliging favor of the 7*^. Inst: is before me. I thank you 
sincerely for the particular & early attention which your friend- 
ship has prompted you to pay to the business now immediately 
intrusted to your inspection; I mean that of the Coach. You say 
that it is agreed for & in hand, but being silent as to the makers 
name I assure myself he is of repute & fully capable of the work 
he has contracted to perform. In matters of this Nature, fancy 
perhaps is the Chief thing to be gratified, I therefore request you 
will keep the Coach-maker Strictly to the description which I 
gave in my first Letter to you on this subject, adding if you please 
by way of General Rule to Guide him, that I wish the Execution 
to be in a neat & elegant Stile, of faithful Staunch workmanship & 
exempt from all manner of tawdry flashiness. — The price is large, 
but if he finishes the Carriage as he ought, I will pay him his 
thousand Dollars chearfully, & I would indeed rather consent to a 
larger Expence than be disappointed. 

I beg your pardon my good friend for writing french to you; 
I had entirely forgot that in our travels together we had only 
learned to speak Hollands — Coleur de puce in plain English is 
flea Colour; that Colour wherewith the Carriage is painted which 
you sent for Governor Pinckney; there are several tints of it. I 
wish my Carriage to have, as I think I mentioned before, one of 
the most brilUant. — The french Gentlemen whom you consulted 
differed indeed exceedingly in their translations, & in fact both 
were wrong, for a fly is neither flea nor mouse, & in colour is no 


more like either than it is to a frog. But this to ourselves. — By 
applying to the Builder of Pinckney's Carriage, he may be able to 
furnish you with the colour; but I will endeavour for greater 
certainty, when I go to Charleston, to procure upon a Ribband, 
or painted on a Bit of paper, the precise Shade that I want, in 
which case you will receive it under this cover. — 

I shall be well satisfied to receive the Carriage the first Week 
in June, & rather at a later period than then unless it shall be 
perfectly finished & in fit order to put on Ship-board. 

Let me request your insisting upon the good quality & fashion 
of the Springs, for it some times happens that uneasy old fashioned 
& misshapen ones are used upon Carriages sent to this Country, 
& it would grieve me perhaps more than the thing is worth, that 
there should be any imperfections of this sort or of any other. 

I cannot keep repeating that I wish the Carriage hung at no 
preposterous height; I like well enough to be in fashion in all 
things & to a good degree, but the extravagance of it is what I 
always avoid & Should be ashamed to be guilty of. 

I shall make the two following additions with your leave to 
former Directions 

1st. Let the Springs be lofty & the Supporting Braces long in 
order to allow as much Swing as possible to the body of 
the Carriage. 

2d. The nuts of the Wheels boxed in order to conceal the 
Extremities of the Axle-trees & the filth of the Grease 
which in open Nuts is always oozing out. — 

These additions cannot I apprehend affect the price or give the 
work man increase of trouble — you will be so good as to attend 
to the making of the L, which you know is to be the Sole orna- 
ment upon the Door pannels, & see it touched off handsomely. — 
But for this I refer you to my Letter in february the 23^ Day or 
thereabouts. — 

I will make no repetition of apologies to you on this occasion, 
because you desire me not; but I am Sensible that I have really 
given & am now giving you much trouble about what, serious 
people would Call a trifle, or at very best a useful Vanity, I am 
not bound however to withhold my thanks nor to refain from 
saying that I am grateful for your attention & kindness & will 
use every opportunity of proving to you by Acts the sincerity of 
mv Words. , ,

Died, on Tuesday last, in the bloom of life, after a short and 
painful illness, Mr. Richard Park Stobo, youngest son of the 
late Richard Park Stobo, of Willtown, deceased. (Saturday, 
Sept. 9, 1797) 

Died, at Parker's Ferry, St. Bartholomew's Parish, on the 8th 
instant, Mr. William Southall, in his 31st year. He is much 
lamented by his friends and acquaintances, as an upright, sober 
and honest man. (Tuesday, Sept. 12, 1797) 

Married, Tuesday evening last, by the Right. Rev. Bishop 
Smith, Mr. William Rutledge, merchant, to Miss Ann Coslett,

Died, at Sullivan's Island on Friday last, Mr. John Baptiste 
Rosetti, miniature painter, much regretted by all his acquaintance. 
(Friday, Sept. 15th, 1797) 

Died, on Friday last, Mr. William Spencer Davis, a native of 
Boston, after a short illness. In the death of this amiable young 
gentleman, the community have lost a member, whose virtues, 
(equalled by few) shone conspicuous during the short residence 
he made in this transitory world, and known best by those who 
had the pleasure of his acquaintance. His relatives have this 
consolation — he met the will of Divine Providence v/ith that 
fortitude, resignation and philosophy characteristic of the scholar 
and the christian — gratitude was a great trait of his disposition, 
but to repay favours was a greater, and the golden rule, ''to do 
to others as you would they should do to you" was in him a prin- 
ciple strictly adhered to. (Monday, Sept. 18, 1797) 

Died on Tuesday the 12th instant. Miss Ann Wall, a native 
of Ireland, after a few days illness. She is much regretted by 
all her acquaintances, and particularly by a surviving and a loving 
sister. In the mind of this amiable young lady were to be found, 
dignity without pride, affabihty without meanness, and simple 
elegance without affectation. 


Died, on Sunday evening, the 17th instant, Charles Beekman, 
only son of the late Col. Beekman, of tjiis city. This amiable 
youth had but a few weeks past attained the age of manhood, and 
was hurried out of this world after a very short illness; on the last 
day of which, sensible of his approaching dissolution he viewed 
the tyrant death with the calmness of a true Christian. To his 
disconsolate mother, this loss is irreparable; his virtue and endow- 
ments promised an ornament to his country; his engaging manners 
endeared him to all his acquaintance, but most so to his numerous 
and near relatives, who, while memory lasts, will lament his 
early fate. 

Died, on Saturday last^ at the house of Mr. Joseph Kay, Mr. 
John Goundrey, a native of, and lately from Yorkshire, Old 
England; a man universally esteemed by all who knew him. 

Died, yesterday, after a short illness, Mr. James King, merchant, 
a native of Dublin, lately from Philadelphia. 

We hear from Union County, Pinckney District, that on the 
29th of June last departed this Hfe, Major Cushman Edson, after 
a short illness. He was a native of Plardwick, in the county of 
Worcester (Massachusetts), but for many years a merchant in 
this state. He has left two orphans to the care of his mother 
and brother, now in this city. (Tuesday, Sept. 19, 1797) 

Died, on Monday last, after a short illness, the Rev. James 
King (of the Methcdist Church) a native of Virginia. He en- 
joyed religion about eleven years, and preached the Gospel with 
success near four years. Last year his labours were much blessed, 
and the people in the upper part of this state well know his worth 
as a minister. He preached in this city the last six months of 
his life, greatly to the satisfaction of his hearers; was much beloved 
by his brethern, and promised great usefulness in the church; a 
man of a sound judgment, good understanding, agreeable in his 
address, and of a great piety. He was resigned and happy in his 
last hours. But this bright sun is gone down at noon, while his 
happy spirit is gone to search the records of the city above, and 
his numerous friends are left to lament the loss of so promising 
a youth. 

Died, yesterday morning, Mr. John Orr, a native of Scotland, 
regretted by all his acquaintance. (Wednesday, Sept. 20th, 1797) 

Died, on the night of Tuesday, the 19th instant, and was 


interred the following day at the Catholic Church, Donna Maria 
Creagh Murphy, wife of Don Diego Murphy, Consul of his Catholic 
Majesty in this city; a lady of an ancient and honorable family of 
Ireland, but still more respectable for her amiable virtues and 
endearing manners. She has left an afflicted husband, three 
infant children, and a numerous acquaintance, to regret the loss of 
an affectionate wife, a tender mother, and sincere friend. (Friday, 
Sept. 22, 1797) 

Died, at Camden, on Friday, the 22nd instant. Doctor James 
Martin; whose good nature, candour and honesty, endeared him 
to all his acquaintance. In life he was a good citizen, and in 
death, a man. (Wednesday, Sept. 27, 1797) 

Died, in St, Matthew's Parish, on the 22nd instant, Mrs. Mary 
Warley, wife of Mr. Paul Warley. In her dissolution, a dis- 
consolate husband mours the loss of an amiable companion, and 
her children an affectionate mother; the grief of those, and a crowd 
of weeping friends, speak most eloquently her eulogium, and tell 
the many virtues which died with her. If affability is agreeable, 
if sincerity is to be esteemed, if piety is a virtue, and if a strict 
discharge of all the duties which a state of humanity imposed 
upon her should make her remembrance dear to those with whom 
she was connected, they justly water the mansion of her rest with 
tears. In a word, if virtue claims a place with God, she is seated 
in glory. (Thursday, Sept. 28th, 1797) 

Died, on Wednesday last of a severe illness, which continued 
eleven days, and was borne with Christian patience and resigna- 
tion, Mrs. Abigail Barker, mother of Mr. Barker, merchant, of 
this city, and sister to the Rev. Dr. Rogers, professor of oratory 
in the University of Pennsylvania. This amiable lady possessed 
in an eminent degree, the moral social and relative virtues, to 
which she added unaffected and exalted piety. (Friday, Sept. 29,

merchant, of this city, to Miss Hannah Jones. (Thursday,

Ungshead, Mr. WiUiam Russell Gray, to Miss Ruth Ann Man,

capt. Isaac Barre Hichborne, to Miss Catharine Mackhsh, eldest 
daughter of the late capt. Thomas Mackhsh, of this city. (Satur- 
day, Oct. 14, 1797) 

Died, at New York on the 29th ult. in the prime of life, Mr. 
David Murdoch, a native of Gallway in Scotland, who had been 
for some time past in a declining state of health. He was a young 
man in whose character honor, probity and rectitude of conduct 
were conspicuous traits, and whose agreeable manners, and cheer- 
fulness of disposition, at once rendered him amiable and engaging. 
His friends and acquaintances most sincerely regret this v/orthy 
young man's death. While in this world he led an upright and 
virtuous course, and with the fortitude and resignation of a 
Christian left this for a more glorious inheritance. (Tuesday, 
Oct. 17, 1797) 

Died, at Libby's Point, Christ Church Parish, on Monday, the 
16th instant. Royal Flint, esq., a native of the State of Massa- 
chusetts. In the late revolution congress appointed him deputy 
commissary general of purchases to the army, and at the close 
of the war he was again chosen by congress commissioner of 
accounts between the United States and the States of Massa- 
chusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island; in both these offices he 
executed the trust reposed in him with that ability and integrity 
as fully proved the justice of the choice. He was a man possessed 
of a truly benevolent and philanthropic heart, and of an enlight- 
ened understanding; and will be long and justly lamented by those 
who knew his worth. (Thursday, Oct. 19th, 1797) 


Married, yesterday, by the Rev. Mr. Hollingshead, Mrjacob 
Ebney, to Miss Mary Russell, both of this city. (Friday, Oct. 20,

Elias Horry, esq., to the amiable and accomphshed Miss Harriet

Nov. 1, 1797) 

The death of General Huger. Between the hours of twelve and 
one o'clock, on the morning of the sixth ultimo, and in the fifty- 
fourth year of his age, an apoplectic fit terminated the existence 
of the much beloved, and equally lamented Isaac Huger; who was 
possessed of a heart of unbounded benevolence, a temper easy and 
agreeable, manners polite and engaging, a strength of mind truly 
determined, with a degree of courage and bravery the most un- 
daunted when contending with dangers imminent and critical, and 
in situations difficult and trying; happy in the sincere and affec- 
tionate attachment of his friends, yet respected by those who in 
our late contest entertained sentiments immediately opposed to his 
opinions and to the cause to v/hich he had devoted his services. 
His talents as a soldier were highly esteemed, even at the early 
period of seventeen years, when he was nominated to a lieutenancy 
in a battalion raised in 1760, commanded by Thomas Middleton, 
esq. for the express purpose of protecting our then defenceless and 


thinly settled inhabitants of the upper country, from the bar- 
barous and savage incursions of the Cherokee and other Indians. 
In 1775, the memorable juncture, when the demon of discord 
influenced the British nation with an overruling passion for 
dominion and lust of power, and ultimately excited the cabinet 
of St. James to attempt the unwarrantable and destructive plan 
to subdue by force of arms and mihtary array her peaceful and 
rising colonies, and war in consequence pervaded America's rights, 
he was, by the unanimous vote of his fellow-citizens, elected 
senior lieutenant-colonel in South Carolina, of the troops estab- 
lished by the provincial Congress; in 1776 he was appointed 
Colonel to the fifth regiment; and in 1778, promoted to the rank 
of Brigadier- General in the army of the United States; in which 
various and important stations, he had the honor and satisfaction 
to acquit himself with the universal applause and approbation of 
his country. (Thursday, November 2, 1797) 

Died, on Wednesday evening last, Jacob Jacobs, sen. aged 
56 years, a very respectable inhabitant and vendue master in this 
city, after a lingering and tedious indisposition, which he bore with 
manly firmness, leaving a number of relatives and friends to 
lament his loss. Of his integrity through life we may justly say, 
''A wit's a feather, and a chief's a rod 
An honest man's the noblest work. of God." 

(Friday, November 3, 1797) 

Married, on Thursday evening last, by the Right Rev. Bishop 
Smith, Mr. John Ball, to the amiable Miss Elizabeth St. John,

Married, on Sunday night last, by the Rev. Mr. HoUingshead, 
capt. Josiah Crosby, to the amiable Miss Hannah Revell. (Tues- 
day, November 7, 1797) 

Died, on Friday last, on his way home to Pendleton County, 
Master Charles Miller, youngest son of John Miller, esq., of that 
county. His father entertained a wish to have raised him a 
Printer, under the care of the publishers of this paper; but having 
made him perhaps, too much the child of nature and of inde- 
pendence, he sickened at the appearance of artificial life, and 
sighed for his dear back woods. His father complied with his 
urgent request for his return to his most beloved mother, his 


dear relatives, and most esteemed young friends. On the second 
day of leaving Charleston, he was attacked v/ith a fatal disorder, 
which in seven days terminated his earthly existence. ("Wednes- 
day, November 8, 1797) 

Married, on Monday evening last, by the Rev. Mr. Hollings- 
head, Isaac Holmes, esq. to Miss Eliza Baker, daughter of the late

Mrs. Wolstoncraft. — On Sunday morning, the 10th Sept. died 
in child-bed, Mrs. Godwin, the wife of Mr. William Godwin, of 
Somers-Town. She was well-known throughout Europe by her 
literary works, under her original name of Wolstoncraft, and 
particularly by her ''Vindication of the Rights of Woman." For 
affectionate manners, soundness of understanding, and of heart, 
she was, perhaps, never equalled. (Monday, November 13, 1797) 

Died, on the 29th ult. in the neighbourhood of the Four Holes, 
in the 73rd year of her age, Mrs. Catharine Elizabeth Carn, only 
sister of capt. Daniel Strobel, of this city; she was an inhabitant 
of that place about 45 years, during which time she had enjoyed 
an uncommon share of health. She was a kind parent, and friend 
to all mankind, and her death is much lamented by her numerous 
family, consisting of children, grand-children and great-grand- 
children, about ninety in number. 

Died, suddenly, at Augusta, Mr. Robert Brown, merchant, of 
Savannah. (Tuesday, November 14, 1797)

the 10th, on his way to Washington district court, from four or 
five assassins in ambush, Robert Maxwell, esq. sheriff of that 
district. He has left a most excellent woman, but now a dis- 
consolate widow, (daughter of Gen. Anderson) with a large family 
of young children. Three suspected persons have been appre- 
hended, and pursuit was making after a fourth. (Saturday,

Died, on the first instant, at his plantation on John's Island, 
Captain Nicholas James Mainville, a native of France, but a 
resident here ever since our revolutionary war, in which he ren- 
dered faithful and very important services to this country. On 
Sunday he was interred under a beautiful shade, which he had 
long before chosen for his place of rest. Though there was no 
affectionate relative to administer to him the balm of comfort in 
his last days, nor to grace his funeral obsequies, yet his grave 
was watered with the tears of those who knew his worth, and were 
grieved at the loss of so good a man. 

Capt. Mainville had a wife and daughter in France, (it is be- 
lieved at Havre-de-Grasse) who were living at the date of his 
last accounts. 

Died, on the 2nd instant, Mr. Wilham Fair, factor, aged 86

Mayer, merchant, of this city. (Tuesday, Dec. 12, 1797) 

Died, yesterday morning, at the poor house in this city, Mrs. 
Eve Lowry, aged 93. (Friday, Dec. 15, 1797) 


Married, on Thursday, the 7th instant, at Young- Ville, Wac- 
camaw, by the Right Rev. Bishop Smith, Doctor James B. Read, 
to Miss Louisa Young, eldest daughter of Benjamin Young, esq. 
deceased. (Saturday, Dec. 16, 1797) 

Died, on Thursday last, after a lingering illness, Archibald 
Brown, esq. By his death an affectionate wife, and a larg«r tamily 
of children, are deprived of a tender husband and parent; his 
friends, of an agreeable companion; and his country, of a valuable 
citizen. (Tuesday, Dec. 19, 1797) 

On the 14th inst. and in the 46th year of his age, departed this 
life, infinitely lamented, Archibald Brown, esq. who was possessed 
of every virtue essential to happiness. As a husband, the most 
affectionate and attentive; as a parent, equally mild and tender; 
a kind and affectionate brother; and as a master, eminently hu- 
mane and indulgent. His affability of temper, liberality of senti- 
ments, and polite manners endeared him to his friends and ac- 
quaintances; in his intercourse with the world, candour and integ- 
rity formed his conduct; he lived to please and to be respected; 
and died the amiable death of being universally beloved, esteemed 
and regretted. (Thursday, Dec. 21, 1797) 

Died, in the 25th year of his age, at his seat on May River, on 
the 11th inst. David Dixon Stoll, esq. a member of the house of 
representatives of this state. The fortitude with w^hich this 
worthy man bore his last severe illness, of thirty days continuance, 
was truly admirable. Through every stage of the disease, his 
countenance and department were more than philosophically 
placid and serene. His life, luminous with virtue and piety, was 
succeeded by a peaceful and triumphant death, which he was fully 
persuaded would usher him into a glorious immortality. The 
deeply affected widow, his aged and venerable mother, and only 
sister, unitedly mourn their irreparable loss, of one who was 
inestimable as a husband, a son, a brother and a friend. The 
church, of which he was a most worthy and useful member and 
officer, laments the loss of one of her strongest pillars, and brightest 
ornaments. Indeed, v/ithout the least exaggeration, it may be 
averred, that the vicinity in which Mr. Stoll lived, the state, the 
legislature, the country, and the world, are much the poorer for 
the dissolution of this worthy and active member of society, this 
respectable citizen, this eminent Christian. (Saturday, Dec. 23, 


Married, on Sunday evening last, Mr, James Elford, to Miss 
Margaret Gray. 

A letter received on Monday, from Savannah, brings the melan- 
choly tidings, of the death of capt. Jeremiah Dickinson, master

Benjamin Waring the founder of the family in South Carolina, 
arrived in the Colony in 1683. Among the papers in the State 
Historian's Office is an order addressed to Stephen Bull, Surveyor 
General to ''cause to be admeasured and laid out seven hundred 
acres of land unto Benjamin Waring, it being due him for the 
arrival of himself, wife and child, and thirteen other persons 
whose names are recorded in the Secretary's Office the 11*^ day 
of May 1683." 

This land was upon the Ashley River near what is now called 
Slann's bridge. 

In 1711 a grant was made to Thomas Waring son of Benjamin 
and Elizabeth Waring of five hundred acres afterwards known as 
'Tine Hill." This property has since then been in possession of 
the family to the present day. Benjamin the immigrant seems 
to have been a man of some standing. He was a member of the 
Commons House in 1685 (M'Crady Vol. 1— Page 210). In 1693 
he was a member of the Assembly from Berkeley County and in 
1703 and 1711 Commissioner of Taxes for the north side of Ashley 

Thomas Waring, his son, was a member of His Majesty's 
Council having been appointed June 30*^ 1730. In 1739 at the 
time of his death he was still a member of this Council. In 1717 
he signed the petition to the King requesting him to take the 
management of the Colony out of the hands of the Proprietors. 
His brothers Benjamin and Richard also held public offices. 

There are several branches of this family in South Carolina all 
tracing their descent from Benjamin through his three sons 
Thomas, Benjamin and Richard.
